Make Use Of Your Historic Data

We all want to know if the pandemic and lockdowns have damaged email marketing.

Don’t Blindly Follow Best Practices Or Rules

Anyone new to email marketing would, no doubt, search online for best practices in order to ensure they make as few mistakes as possible in their introduction to our craft.

Giving Away Something Brings Its Own Reward

I’ll take a wild stab in the dark and suggest that almost everyone enjoys getting something for free. I know I do. The recent holiday period showed that it holds true for my grandchildren as well, and there must be very few who look it in the mouth. If a company sends a gift to … READ MORE »

Don’t Try To Predict Email Marketing Trends

I always do it, despite knowing there is no benefit. I learn nothing, it doesn’t improve my email marketing performance, and it does nothing for my mood, yet every year I go over any predictions I made the previous January. I do manage to drag something from it. 2021 consisted of a series of incidents … READ MORE »

Making Your Email Marketing More Accessible

I was told by a specialist eyesight doctor there’s a degree of concern with regards the sight ability of youngsters today.
